The following is a guest post from Anthony Romeo, staff writer for GaysWithKids and Huffington Post blogger, about his journey to adopt a child and how it is influenced by the mothers all around him.

It is May 15, 2008.

I am sitting at the Barnes and Noble just a stone’s throw from New York’s Lincoln Center, listening to Broadway star Kerry Butler singing songs for her album release, “Faith, Trust, & Pixie Dust.” She is singing beautifully, in great voice, showcasing her vocals and her ability to connect with an audience. My heart rises, falls, swells, one song after another. And in the row of seats in front of me, Tina Fey’s baby won’t shut up.

Now, in 2015, I am 30 years old, married, and happy. [Read more…]

Bumbo Multi Seat Review

BUMBO Multi Seat

When Bumbo asked me to review its new seat, I initially declined. “Sorry! My kids are way past the Bumbo chair stage and the baby is too little,” I responded.

Then I learned that the new Bumbo Multi Seat is actually for kids aged 5 months through 3 years, so I changed my answer and agreed to test it out. [Read more…]

How many Dr. Seuss books can you name? The obvious ones come to mind first…

The Cat in the Hat. Green Eggs and Ham. How the Grinch Stole Christmas. 

But did you know that there is a long list of other Dr. Seuss books that you probably haven’t even heard of? 

If you’re looking to expand your Dr. Seuss collection or celebrate his birthday (a.k.a. National Read Across America Day) on March 2nd, here are some of his lesser-known titles… [Read more…]

After waiting months for the mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead‘s fifth season, it was a total bust…there was practically NO DARYL DIXON in the entire episode.

I mean, I was all decked out in my special D.D. hoodie. Even my baby got in on the action.

Which got me thinking.

If a Daryl Dixon fan wanted to spend a weekend reliving some of Daryl’s greatest moments on The Walking Dead, which episodes would they be?

Here are my choices for The 10 Best Daryl Dixon Episodes… [Read more…]

If you recall, a few months ago I posted a list of the The Worst Real Househusbands of All Time…featuring such gems as Apollo Nida, Jim Marchese, and Slade Smiley.

Well, it’s not fair for just the liars and the cheats to get all the bloggy love from me.

So now it’s time to give props to the good guys. They may not all be total angels, but at least they won’t lie and tell you they have tickets to a state dinner at the White House and end up causing a national security panic. (Nice one, Tareq.)

May I present to you…The Best Real Househusbands of All Time, in no particular order.

Life With Three

I remember life with one. I thought it was so hard. 

I didn’t have a blog or a business back then, so my sole job was to take care of a baby. Just the one.

Those were the days of lounging in bed with a newborn…sleeping and nursing. Nursing and sleeping. 

My biggest problem was what I would watch on TV when I got through the 30 episodes of Law and Order: SVU  on the TiVo. [Read more…]

Top 10 Cringe-Worthy Moments from The Bachelor Last Night (Hometowns)

Top 10 Cringe-Worthy Moments from The Bachelor Last Night

Hometown dates always make me sad. Four different families each get their hopes up that their daughter is going to be “the chosen one.” 

And by chosen one, I mean one who will get engaged to Chris, move to the farm, and break up before the wedding– all within the next 6-8 months. 

Hometown Dates also provide lots of interesting family members to help fill out this list. 

Here we go again, the Top 10 Cringe-Worthy Moments from The Bachelor Last Night… [Read more…]

Was anyone else caught off-guard by The Bachelor on a Sunday night? I was!

This episode was a goodie and, as usual, full of some cringe-worthy moments. But I will confess that it’s getting harder and harder to fill this list, now that the crazies are gone.
